Indie rapper J$tash has turned himself in to the NYPD to face serious charges that he allegedly attacked his girlfriend, leaving her unconscious.

The 21-year-old rapper, whose real name is Justin Joseph, reportedly hit his girlfriend, Danielle Phaeton, in the face and body on Sept. 15 in their Bushwick, Brooklyn apartment, reports the NY Daily News. The two were arguing when the rapper hit Phaeton, also referred to as Danii Phae, giving her a black eye and injuring her head, among other injuries.

"A person I thought and believed I could trust, whom I gave my love/time/energy to brutally punched me in my face repeatedly with his fists while I became slowly unconscious covered in blood in his Brooklyn apartment bed," Phaeton wrote on her Tumblr page, along with posting a photo of her black eye. The post has been removed but Bossip features the text as well as the image.

J$tash, who hails from Florida but currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., offered his side of the story on his Instagram page, stating, "Never would I promote domestic violence or be apart of such actions." He referred to Phaeton's abuse allegations as "slanderous accusations" and even revealed that he gave her over $30,000 and funded her business.

The 'Nuthin' rapper's attorney, Alex Spiro, confirmed that he would be arraigned today (Oct. 15) or Thursday, but had no further comment on the incident.

Read J$tash's version of events below.

 

I recently discovered that my ex-girlfriend Danielle Phaeton also known as Danii Phae went to the Internet to post slanderous accusations about me. Due to the fact that I broke up with her. I have given everything to Danii over the course of our relationship. Not only did I give her my love but I gave her a two luxurious homes to stay at, I also gave her over $30,000 and funded everything to do with her achieving her dreams and career aspirations, including setting up her business, buying all the materials for her brand, and also handling all the business operations from having my people run her emails & meetings. Never would I promote domestic violence or be apart of such actions. I have never asked her for anything and it hurts me to feel betrayed by this slander of my image to the public. People change when they see someone coming up in this world and I’m starting to realize that. All I can say at this moment is I love my fans and my Relax Rekords family. There are two sides to every story. BELIEVE THAT. Due To The Legal Process I Cant Disclose Anymore Information At This Time.
